Years Played: 2016 - 2019
Cubs second baseman Javier Baez crushed a three-run double to right field to put the Cubs up 8-1 in the eighth inning.
Baez appeared to feel his hamstring tighten up when he put on the brakes after settling for a double. However, he stayed in the game after a quick look from the trainer. He said in postgame interviews that he is fine and will play in Game 6.
He also had several standout plays on defense.
